Exchange Square

Exchange Square is civic square in Manchester, England. The square was created after the IRA 1996 Manchester bombing. This reconstruction included the structural relocation of two pubs to make room for the new Marks & Spencer store.
Today the square is a major shopping area including a branch of Selfridges, New Cathedral Street, The Triangle shopping centre and an entrance to the Manchester Arndale, the most-visited shopping centre in the United Kingdom.

The Triangle Shopping Centre

The Triangle is a grade II listed building. The building was originally used as a corn exchange and was previously named the Corn & Produce Exchange. Following the IRA bomb in 1996 it was renovated and is now a modern shopping centre.
